Sir Elton's Fears For Boyle

SIR ELTON JOHN fears SUSAN BOYLE's fame will be fleeting, because she is too fragile to endure the "rigours of showbusiness".
The Scottish singer shot to fame on hit TV show Britain's Got Talent last year (09) and her debut album, I Dreamed a Dream, broke records as it topped charts across the world.
Her upcoming second record, The Gift, already looks set to be another big hit after topping pre-order lists ahead of its release on 9 November (10).
But Sir Elton is adamant that Boyle, who was admitted to London clinic The Priory suffering from exhaustion after finishing second on the TV show, won't be able to cope with the demands of superstardom.
He tells Britain's Radio Times, "Susan Boyle was an endearing phenomenon, but I fear she might not understand the rigours of showbusiness."

She has learned to cope with her sudden stardom very well and will only get stronger. She has the unconditional love of millions of fans who will always stand with her should she need us. Susan's star will continue to rise and her light will continue to shine - you'll see.

Susan is a very emotional lady, but that does NOT mean that she isn't a tough cookie, because I think she is!!!Also have you noticed that whenever another "Star" needs publicity for something, they always comment about Susan in the press? it's one SURE WAY of getting THEIR name in the papers!!!Susan will go from Strength to Strength, as she has the love & support from her millions of fans.All good wishesMike

Elton better read Susan's book. This little lady has determination and endurance. Read what she has endured for the past 40 years. See how many times she sang in contests and free for charities all over her town for many years, just trying to become a professional singer. And Jan. 21, 2009, at the age of 47, Susan started out from her home at 6am to go to an audition, many towns over. It took her 6 buses and a few hours to get there. When she got there, they told her to come back, they did not have her on the list even though she had an appointment. When she insisted, they told her to wait. She waited all day until 7:30 pm to get on that program and didn't get out of there until midnight. I would say that she sure does have determination and one magnificent voice to go with it. And now she has many fans, like me, who just love her to pieces. Keep going Susan.
